A clear requirement for an international company like Samsung is that its products are localised. And for the company’s AI project Bixby, the South Korean conglomerate has confirmed that German will be added in the fourth quarter of 2017.
When the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ reach customers later this month, Bixby will support US English and Korean.
However, Samsung’s German support site confirms that plans are in place for the country’s native language to be included by the end of the year.
It is almost certain that Bixby will gain support for other additional languages besides German.
Rival service Amazon Alexa currently support US English, British English and German.
